The Aalto vase in the colors rain and clear. Aalto wanted the design made from everyday glass, not lead crystal, so the early vases used glass available in the factory at that time. Since the 1960s more colors have been added.
I am quite a collector of all things black. Here we have the miniature Panton chair with the human-sized version, both made by Vitra. The AJ Lamp, was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1960 and made by Louis Poulsen, is my favourite floor lamp. On the cardboard block table are a selection of Dinosaur Designs bowls and an iittala Aalto vase. The wall calendar was designed by Massimo Vignelli and is produced by Nava Design.
Here is a very small post of two design icons: Alvar Aalto’s Aalto vase (originally designed in 1937) and produced by iittala and miniature Panton chairs designed by Verner Panton (in 1967) and produced by Vitra.
Here is a small collection of green glass objects. From left to right: iittala Kivi votives, iittala Aalto vase, iittala Jars, more iittala Kivis and two handblown glass vases from Object and Space Furniture.
post number twenty seven - aalto vases and dishes and penguin
In this post are some iittala Alvar Aalto ‘Aalto’ vases and small dishes in clear and grey glass. The cute white glass penguin (at least I think its a penguin) is second-hand from Chapel Street Bazaar.
